She dislikes the idea of being a footballer wag

Melanie dislikes the idea of being a footballer wag and the assumptions that go with it. 

When she was dating Theo, it was never in her mind that she thought that she would shop for the rest of her life. 

For her, it was always paving her direction in her career path to have a better career. 

She confessed to hating the stereotype that footballer wags wear short dresses, massive sunglasses, and shop all the time.

Melanie never wanted to be associated with those wags. She believes those wannabes desperate to sleep with the footballer lack respect. 

She described herself as not being a typical wag but a person of her own.

The reason behind their healthy relationship
